The time for expansion is now! We are thrilled to announce the #GrowAP campaign. After years of increasing need in the community and much time spent exploring our options, we are finally making expansion a reality.
Over 40 families are consistently waiting for a safe home to reunify and overcome homelessness. Within these families are 76 children, most of whom are separated from their mom until a spot at Amethyst Place opens. That wait is taking a year or longer
The time to grow is now, pandemic or otherwise. We were fortunate enough to secure land right next to our current campus thanks to the very generous support of donors. It is enough space to build 34 more units – nearly doubling our capacity. These boards show some beautiful renderings of what we have planned, including 22 apartments, 12 townhomes, and greenspace for families to play. Right now, we are finishing up our application for low income housing tax credits to help fund construction. If we are awarded, construction would begin in summer of 2022.
Even with that funding, we still need supporters like you to help us bring this to fruition. Your support helps us keep our current operations strong while also helping us build homes for 34 new families.
